Speaker Will Address Spiritual Aspect of Aging


Luebke, Nancy, Daily Herald (Arlington Heights, IL)


Byline: Nancy Luebke Daily Herald Correspondent

Spiritual gerontology or people seeking God at any time in their lives may find answers during "The Spirituality of Aging" from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. March 9 at St. Margaret Mary Church, 1450 Green Trails Drive in Naperville.

Richard P. Johnson will be the featured speaker focusing on three topics during the event.

The second topic he will present is "Handling the Five Difficult Personalities of the Later Years," and his final topic of the day, "The Ten Spiritual Developmental Tasks of the Third Age," will address how to develop and strengthen spirituality beyond mid-life. The three presentations will be interactive and include time for questions and answers.

"Dr. Johnson is nationally recognized for his pioneering work in spiritual gerontology, and people of all ages and any religion are invited to attend. Those who are 55 years and older, those who are dealing with family and/or friends who are 55 years and older, and anyone who is interested in knowing more about the aging process are welcome," said Sister Madelyn Gould, director of adult faith formation at St. Margaret Mary Church.

The day will begin at 9 a.m. with coffee, continental breakfast and gathering for prayer before the first presentation at 9:15 a.m. There will be a break between the morning presentations, and the second presentation will begin at 10:45 a.m. Lunch, which is included in the $10 fee for the day, will be served at 12:30 p.m., followed by the third presentation at 1:15 p.m.

This is the first time that St. Margaret Mary is hosting a program on aging, and Johnson, who runs the Johnson Institute for Senior Adult Ministry in St. Louis, Mo., came highly recommended by nuns who have taken courses in gerontology from him.

"The need for this program was expressed by a church member who is going through mid-life and wondered where God is in his new life," said Gould. …
